Understanding our challenge types


This world-renowned trek for charity takes us from Lukla through the world’s highest mountain range and encompasses the most breathtaking scenery you can imagine.

You haven’t seen mountains until you’ve seen the Nepalese Himalayas! Eight of the world’s fourteen highest peaks are found in this region and we can assure you the memories of this charity challenge will last a lifetime.

This specially designed itinerary will maximise our chance of success and the trekking is taken at a measured pace in order for us to acclimatise sufficiently. You will experience amazing, motivational and securing support from our local guides – our crew are simply the best around incorporating traditional Sherpas who are from the Everest region. Their generous and loving support will motivate you to push on to reach and achieve your goal.

Words cannot describe the true feelings we will experience on this charity challenge; the sights of Buddhism and Hinduism surround us making this the ultimate trek in the challenge events market – a truly spiritual and humbling experience for all.
